I was a bad girl. I’ve had this review book on my kindle for over three months. I think this is one of those books that you really need to be in the mood to read. I love Sci-fi Romance, but Casey’s Warriors had a little more heat than I normally read.

Lorn Adar has searched more than a lifetime to find his bondmate–the one woman he was born to love and the only woman who can save him from the approaching madness that threatens all unbonded males of his race. When a wormhole opens from his galaxy to Earth and the women who could hold their future, Lorn will do all in his power to not only find his mate, but show her a Universe she never knew existed. Casey Westfall’s normal life changed forever when she finds the sexy leather clad man on her doorstep. One innocent kiss leads to an adventure that will span worlds and Casey will have to choose between the man who is the other half of her soul and never seeing her family or her world again.
To complicate matters Kadothians live in polyamerous family units and Lorn will have to convince his Earth bride to accept not only his love, but the love of his best friend and brothers in arms or risk the chance of losing them to either the madness or the Hive–the race of sociopathic women bent on destroying and enslaving everything in their path, but Casey can’t see loving more than one man as being anything other than a sin. Lorn will have to teach his bride that she was created for both of them just as they were created only for her.
In a Universe where all is possible, the battle to protect not only his people, but his heart rests on the soul of a human woman who must face the unknown and take a leap of faith that could save or destroy them all.
Warning: This book features a galaxy where love in any and all forms is embraced including M/M, M/M/F and M/F.
The Kodathian people are aliens that live for hundreds of years before gradually going insane without a bondmate to save stabilize them. Lorn Adar is approaching the end of his tether and is becoming desperate. If he doesn’t find a mate soon, he and his team will die. When a wormhole opens up to a new world, the possibility of finding his mate sends him on a wild quest, and he comes across beautiful, curvaceous Casey. But their enemies will do whatever it takes to make sure the bindings fail. Lorn must fight his instincts to immediately lay claim to Casey and convince her that love is possible from beyond the stars or he may lose her to his enemies forever.
The beginning of the book opened a little slow for me, but I loved the first meeting between Lorn and Casey. The mace scene was hilarious! Lorn’s backstory really captured my attention, so imagine my disappointment when the wonderful science fiction story slowly thinned out, replaced by smexy scenes. I guess I wanted more fighting, more tension, not just different sex scenes strung together. Don’t get me wrong, the sex scenes were very well written and fit the story, there was just so many of them. I love strong characters. Unfortunately, Casey seemed to unravel, becoming a bit of a spoiled princess from all the attention. *bummer* By the end of the book, I was really disappointed that some of the plot threads weren’t finished. So, while I loved different aspects of this story, the ending wasn’t strong enough to interest me into continuing the series.
